The FactoryCast™ HMI module provides a variety of human machine interface capabilities including e-mail, data logging, mathematical computations, and the ability to store and display user-defined and standard web pages. The module integrates a web server that acts as a real-time PLC data server. This allows information from Quantum™ and Premium™ PLCs to be displayed in the form of standard web pages in HTML format, which can be accessed from any standard Internet browser. No configuration or programming of either the PLC or the PC supporting the browser is required to access these capabilities.
